In case you didn’t know...
Goldberg came back to the WWE following the announcement that he would be on the cover of WWE 2K17. This ultimately led to Goldberg returning to the ring to answer the challenge laid by Paul Heyman and Lesnar for a rematch from WrestleMania 20.
The match took place last year in November and saw Goldberg defeat Lesnar in less than two minutes. Following this match, both Goldberg and Lesnar announced that they would be entering the Royal Rumble which will take place on January 29, 2016, and will be held at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Goldberg last wrestled in Wisconsin for the WWE in 2004, when he defeated Scott Steiner and Test and won a battle royal in the main event to get the #30 spot in the 2004 Royal Rumble.
The heart of the matter
Goldberg initially just wanted to come back for his one-off match with Lesnar, but it was reported that Vince McMahon managed to convince him to stay until WrestleMania 33. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter also reported that Goldberg agreed to do three more pay-per-view matches and the announcement of his appearance at Fastlane just confirms it.
With no announcement of Brock Lesnar appearing at the PPV, it is highly unlikely that a confrontation between these two stars will take place. However, Goldberg has made his intentions known about pursuing another championship run, so this could indicate that Goldberg will get a shot at the Universal Championship.
Goldberg’s appearance at FastLane will definitely add some excitement to what many consider one of WWE’s worst shows of the year. The brand split has limited the number of wrestlers Raw has to work with and making an exciting show has proven difficult for the brand since the split returned.
Goldberg’s presence will be sure to drive up ticket sales and more people are likely to watch, but the question now becomes who will his opponent be?
Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens will have a match at the Royal Rumble for the Universal Championship and whoever wins that and manages to hang onto the title until March will more than likely meet Goldberg for a championship match, but who will it be?
One thing is for sure, whoever Goldberg faces, it will be interesting to see how the WWE gets there.
